Writing & Reading Groups

Creative writing

Our creative writing groups are great for meeting other writers, sharing your work, and giving feedback on a monthly basis.

If you’re passionate about writing and interested in improving, or just want some support, they are all friendly groups who always welcome newcomers.

Find a local writing group here in our events listings.

Reading groups

Our reading groups meet once a month in a relaxed, informal setting.

We love to welcome new members; whether you’re an avid reader who can’t put books down, or someone who dips in and out of books when time allows.

Books are provided by us and you’ll be able to suggest titles for future reads.

To find out about your local reading group, please contact your local library or look for a group here in our events listings.
